Tom Owens: GB international won Scottish hill title at Durisdeer
scottishathletics Hill Running Championships 2015
The 2015 scottishathletics hill running championships took place at the Durisdeer Hill Race on Saturday 13 June over 14.7km with 1,240m of climb.
The race also hosted a stage of the 6-race league-based British Championship and so attracted a strong field from across Britain.
Tom Owens (Shettleston) came home to win the men’s field in 1:25:00, finishing nearly 30 seconds clear of Finlay Wild (Lochaber) with Rob Hope (Dark Peak) in third.
In the women’s race, Jasmin Paris (Carnethy) continued her fine run of form to win in 1:37:33, ahead of Victoria Wilkinson (Bingley) and Hannah Horsburgh (Keswick).
Both winning times were a few minutes outside the course records which were set by Rob Jebb and Angela Mudge back in 2008.
